The Maori legend is as follows: In the beginning there was no sky, no sea, no earth and no gods. There was only darkness, only Te Kore, the Nothingness. The very beginning was made from nothing. From this nothingness, the primal parents of the Maori came, Papatuanuku, the Earth mother and Ranginui, the Sky father.

Papatuanuku and Ranginui came together, embracing in the darkness, and had 70 male children. These offspring became the gods of the Maori. However, the children were locked in their parents embrace, in eternal darkness, and yearned to see some light. They eventually decided that their parents should be separated, and had a meeting to decide what should be done.

They vowed to separate their parents in order to see the light of day, but none could accomplish such a feat. The coin shows Tane-Mahuta, the god of man and forests at long last separating Papatuanuku and Ranginui, creating the world of light.

The Koru, a symbol used to represent creation in Maori art, is founded on the form of an unrolling fern leaf. Its circular shape is suggestive of eternal movement with an eventual reversion to the original point. In essence, the Koru represents the phenomenon of an ever-changing life that manages to somehow remain the same in many regards.

Hesitated to purchase, but I'm glad I did

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Like other reviews, I saw this while browsing and but didn't purchase it right away. The price being the main factor in my hesitation. I really liked the coin and was impressed with the design. So, I kept it in my wishlist and had added it to five orders then removed it at check out because I couldn't justify the cost over spot. Finally I gave in and pulled the trigger. When it arrived it was not a disappointment in any way. It comes in a well designed box that's a work of Koru art in and of itself. The coin is a fantastic piece and I go to it as my show piece over other much more collectible coins. I wish I had order this coin much sooner. My only fear is that I'd like to have it graded and it would upset me if such a beautiful coin was graded any less than perfect. Because in my eye it is the perfect coin. That being the case I intend to purchase more on my next run and try my luck with NGC. Whether or not this coin becomes one of the great collectibles, I must say it is by far my favorite and will hold great value to me regardless. APMEX, flawless transaction like always!

Amazing Coin for any collector.

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

When I saw this coin online, I thought it looked cool, but when I opened the box and saw it in person, I was speechless. The detail is amazing, in perfect condition, the collector's box was in great condition, and it had its COA and number. The coin I received happened to be #255 out of 2,000. With that low of mintage, in a few years, its worth is bound to increase.


  • Pros
  • Unique
  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
